    used saddles recomendation

    Ok here is the thing I kinda won a georgeous horse at a competition he is big warmblood, and my saddle doesent fit him....
    I have to get a new one for him, but I can't afford a new one. I would like you to help me on where to find a nice used one.
    Also recomedations on english brands, I need something tht is leather made. And it can be more than 400 USD. For the moment.
    Any sugestions would be great. Better if it can be shipped internationally if not no prob since I have an adress in AZ.

    It would be a great idea to post some pics of the horse. And what saddle you have and why it doesn't fit him. Before giving any advices on brand of the saddle because all saddles fit very differently depending on confo.

    Try HorseClicks, Craigslist, Bits & Barter, and Ebay.

    You'll need to know what size will actually fit the horse though, before you can buy one.

    Yep he is coming home next week. Here is a vidio of him warming up in the competition I won him yesterday. That is his actual saddle not mine so this one does fit him. He has wider shoulders than my other boys lol.
    Im looking arround to get the saddle once I have him home and can actually measure him. Just to have some price ideas, brands, etc. so it will all be easier to find it once he is home.
    My trainers wife told me he can get ruined if he doesnet have the proper saddle, and I just don't wanna risk it since he is a very well know show jumper in the area.
    In the video we are doing small jumps to calm myself down and warm him up lol.
    Thank you very much

    What is the brand/model of the saddle that DOES fit him? If you know it then you can just look for used one of this specific brand.

    There was no second price, its a weird off season circuit, made by a huge local company called INFRA.
    They do it to suport the sport since they are actually warmblood breeders. Well the owners of the company.
    They are from my state, and they tell every FCI aproved trainer in queretaro (my state) to choose one of their students and nominate then for this circuits.
    And they send someone see you ride, you friends film you and send them to you and you actually don't know you are nominated until you are in teh finals just 3 arrive to the final, and the final test is do a small circuit with the prize. And if you come first off the 3 then you win.

    The horses they give as a prize, are young experienced horses.
    The one I won in particular is registered under the name de reojo. He endedn no 8 at the nationals this year jumping the 1.30 open circuit for 6 yr old horses.
